What's in tom weber's Golf Bag
Last Updated: September 18, 2019
I have been playing golf since I was 11 years old. Grew up in Chicago, played on the high school and college golf teams. Moved to California in 1970. I play a lot of golf, average about 350 rounds a year. The only thing that keeps me off the course is frost. I'll play in rain, wind, fog, heat/cold, etc. I play super early every day because I hate waiting around.
As I age, it has become difficult to accept that I can no longer play to the level I once played too. While I still love the game, I have tended to isolate myself because I am embarrassed by the deterioration of my skill level. However, I am still on a quest to accomplish my long time goal of shooting my age.

Another early pre-dawn start at Eagle Crest. A very busy day as I heard that every tee had been sold, which makes teeing off in the cold/dark, worth it to avoid a 4+ hour round. (We finished in 2 hours 20 minutes)
The greens are the best part of the course, and in all honesty, they weren't as good as usual. A number of bare spots, which typically were not there. Fairways, particularly on the first three holes were awful, almost zero grass. They did improve as the round progressed. Bunkers could have been decent, but they were very wet from overnight sprinklers. Rough was poor, at best.
I really enjoy this course. It is a wonderful fun track, and the staff is fantastic. Conditions are simply poor. There is so much potential here if someone had the foresight and $$.» Close

As always first off, which is great, but the cold temperatures do not help these old bones, plus the ball just doesn't fly far in these cold conditions. The fairways have grown in very nicely from the recent over seeding, so they are very lush, which looks and plays nice, but does not provide much roll out, so that condition combined with the cold and old age makes the course play extra long. Greens are excellent, roll very true and reasonably quick. Bunkers are great, but still can't get past not being able to rack them !
Rough is the worst part of the course, not that it's bad, it's just the rest of the course is so good, so I guess I notice it more. A few tee boxes could use some attention.
Because the North course has been and continues to be closed, the South is very busy and gets a lot of play, but it is holding up well.» Close

Have not played Woodland Hills for a couple years, so it was nice to return and play with my older brother who is a member. Despite it being ladies guest day, we were able to get out without delay and played a nice easy 3 1/2 hour round without waiting or being pushed. Weather was really nice, sunny, warm & clear.
Greens are always a challenge at this course, so important to understand which holes not to get above the cup or short side yourself, otherwise it can be brutal to get up & down or even 2 putt. The bunkers were some of the best I've seen since the whole Covid crap began. Even had rakes, which was such a pleasure to see ! Fairways were good, but the rough was inconsistent.
Not a lot of roll out, so course played long. Do not let the "short" yardage deceive you, as this course is much more difficult than the score card would lead you to believe. Despite playing really poorly, enjoyed a great day.» Close

One of my favorite golf courses to play, in part because the staff here is always terrific to deal with, very accommodating. Courses conditions are always good here, and generally have no issues. Even the bunkers were better than expected. Greens rolled well, but not as true and quick as usual. Good coverage on the fairways.
Cool, no cold in the morning, but warmed up nicely, so by the back nine it was a near perfect day to play golf. With all that's going on in the world today, it is so wonderful to get out and enjoy this distraction. One of the many reasons I love golf !» Close

Had a 7am tee time, but was able to get out 30 minutes early, so a big thanks to the pro shop, who were a pleasure to deal with. Super easy friendly and fast check in.
A really perfect morning to play. Clear, a bit cool, but warmed up quickly. Obviously no issues with pace of play. Now the downside: While never a big fan of this course, it us "different" from most courses I play, so that's always something to look forward too. I can see they are really making an effort to improve the condition, but I need to be objective and call it like it is. The greens were awful. They were not level, bumpy, pot-marked, inconsistent, etc. They were in the process of punching all the green perimeters, so that might help, but they need to rolled as well. Lots of bare areas in the fairways, as is always the case here, but I have to admit there is more grass on the fairways than any time I've played here previously.
Because of the nature of the course, and coupled with the recent rains last week, there were many scruffy areas and plenty of mud. I can see they're trying, but there is just so much to do here, I sympathize with the maintenance staff. I hope they succeed because this is such a unique course for the area, I'd hate to see it close.» Close
